FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — In Cumberland County Friday, trees fell on at least two homes during severe storms.
A tree fell on a home in the Vander area and one fell on a house near Andrews Road in Fayetteville, according to a news release from Sally Shutt, Cumberland County assistant county manager.
Elsewhere, power was out in many areas at and around Cross Creek Mall after trees were downed.
Trees fell on power lines, creating outages along Morganton Road, Bragg Boulevard and Sycamore Dairy Road, Shutt said.
Those outages, which include Skibo Road, were the largest power outages in the area, Fayetteville PWC officials said. By 6:30 p.m., about 6,000 customers had their power restored, officials later said.
Powerful storms have moved across central North Carolina most of the afternoon – resulting in tornado warnings across the area.
A confirmed tornado caused damage in the Hillsborough area of Orange County.
